Penkridge Junior U17 Boys

Coach – Pete Spillard – FA Level 1, FA Level 2 Certificate in Football, FA Age Appropriate, CRB – 07768 632093

Unfortunately in our 11th season we’re having a break while the players explore new interests with sixth form, college and apprenticeships taking over the majority of their time, we are still training with the senior squads on Wednesday nights at Wolgarston 3g hopefully looking to start again in guise or another next season.

In this our tenth season we will again be competing in Lichfield and District League. Season 2010-11 saw an end to our adventures in the Mid Staffs League, playing 11aside football in an U12 league, having previously played 7aside mini-soccer with U7 and U8 seasons in the the Lichfield and District league and then moving to the Mid Staffs League from U9. Over the last few years the squad has matured and grown from the experience of difficult seasons resulting in two successful campaigns over the last two seasons. We look forward to what could be our final season in the Lichfield and District Junior League.
